I Robot?

I noticed this is for pre-sale at Amazon.co.uk. It is the R2 & it is a 2 disc. I have not seen anything for the R1 version. Have I missed something?

There doesn't seem to be any specs on the special features yet, but I hope this won't be another instance of R2 getting a better edition.

Sounds like the R1 will be a single disc. I'll be going with the R2.

I know this probably doesn't mean much, but in the talk-backs on DVDA, one of the guys says his uncle works at Fox and swears it's a 2 discer. Why the hell wouldn't they release the 2 discer (and why didn't they for The Day After Tomorrow?

Sounds like they are looking for us to Double-Dip! "I Robot", depends on the actual release, but "the Day After Tomorrow" someone is definetly looking for us to Pay Twice at the Pump!

Definitely needs a 2-discer! Of course there would be the standard Proyas (and whoever else) commentary (a Will Smith commentary would be neat) and fluff pieces . . . but a retrospect piece on Asimov and his stories would be nice.

From thedigitalbits

As far as specs and extras, I, Robot will include anamorphic widescreen video, both Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 audio, commentary by director Alex Proyas and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman, The Making of I, Robot featurette, a still gallery and previews for other upcoming Fox titles.

R2 & R3 will be a 2-disc release with DTS. Region 1 will be a single disc without dts.

Simple as this. Don't be surprised if a SE comes out a months later. Fox is doing this more and more now.

The 2 disc NTSC region 3 is available at cd-wow.fm for about $15.81. Search for i, robot which is released on 26th Oct.

Worth doing if you have a multi-region player.
